Be the change

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”

Mahatma Gandhi

A simple and popular,yet very important quote. Change in one’s universe begins with the individual themselves, this can lead to alterations in the world around said person. Changing oneself, worldview (for the better) can have a HUGE impact on the way the world receives you. Negative attracts negative and positive attracts positive. If you are tired of the negative ways of the world, react not aggressively,but with kindness and love in your heart. As the quote says, “Be the change you WISH…” And change is an action word. Notice it doesn’t say “Wish for change”. Without action, no change is made. Little by little, you can make a difference.

Mental: The former can be a scary proposition, as it often means stepping into unfamiliar territory. Do not always feel like you have to do everything at once. Sometimes you do just have to dive in, but not always. Change is uncomfortable, mentally especially;growing pains. Unfortunately folks sometimes,to change one’s life, this requires facing your fear head on and just doing it. This can be hard, but the more you practice doing things differently,the easier you will find situations.

Physical : Realize that each individual is created differently, we all have imperfections. No one is perfect; in our world that doesn’t exist anyway. Beware of those who claim perfection or offer you such,as this is an illusion and can lead to feelings of inadequacy. Accept who you are at the present moment and use negative comments as motivators, rather than as a means to define you or make you feel less-than! Don’t give anyone the power to define you as an individual. You are YOU,flaws and all; accept that 🙂

Social: Look for something other than another person to complete you,whether romantic or platonic. This is hard to grasp in a culture so deadset on instilling the importance of this. As human beings, we are prone to have issues; putting faith and your all into an individual will possibly let you down. The old saying “You can’t love someone unless you love yourself” definitely resonates. People outside of you will not make you permanently happy; it starts with YOU.
